Ed Lewis

S 10       ED LEWIS
Artist and photographer

My work as an archaeologist, producing archaeological site plans, sections and artefact drawings and historic landscape characterisation helped to give me the background to fulfil my early ambitions to become a wildlife artist.  

It is only in the past few years that I have had the time to pick up a pencil/paintbrush again since giving up professional archaeology and moving to the Outer Hebrides. One of the reasons my wife and I moved here is its rich and diverse wildlife and landscape, something I wanted to capture - both graphically and digitally.

I've always been interested in nature, science and history, and as a child I used to draw a lot, trying to capture as realistically as possible the natural world around me. As a result, I try to produce realistic, almost photographic, paintings and drawings. I suppose this is the scientist in me - I have an almost forensic eye for detail.

In my photographs and artwork, I try to capture the detail or 'essence' of the subject (whether it be animal, plant or landscape), but using an artist's eye for composition, placing and light.

Donald Libby

S 7 DONALD LIBBY   Sculpture and Art

Donald is a local artist based in Stornoway. His unique work uses debris found on the island's beaches. He works his magic on discarded plastic, rusted metal, pieces of driftwood, old fishing buoys etc ... turning beach-finds into colourful and imaginative pieces of art.

 

Donald's  artwork and sculptures frequently depict lighthouses, harbours, boats and cottages, forming small island dioramas which you could almost step into. 

Donald also creates amazing images from brightly coloured beach plastic which are  spectacular and dramatic.

Dotty M Rennox

S 10       DOTTY M RENNOX Artist

My name is Dotty and I have lived on the Isle of Lewis since 1998. I originate from Lanarkshire on 'mainland' Scotland. I work full time in the NHS. I have two grown up sons and spend my time outside of work creating and exploring with my artwork.

I have an eclectic style. I use mixed media (acrylic on canvas /sea glass/ sea pottery to create my art. The land, sea and sky of the Outer Hebrides deeply inspire my work and the colours I am drawn to when I paint. I’m passionate about combing the beaches up and down these islands to find the most beautiful colourful and unique pieces of sea glass and sea pottery. The story of each piece intrigues me. 

I love the space and calm the surrounding environment gives me. It brings me joy and a way to express the creative passion I have within me. It's all about the story, the history, coming to life in a piece of art that speaks to us. Art has become very important to me living in such a wild beautiful place.
